Literacy Loot is a weekly post that features cool and unique literacy items found online and in stores for the classroom, home and even to wear! Join me in sharing your find of the week!
Hello, literacy lovers! September is almost here, but I’ve still found some back to school treasures that are perfect for the classroom!
This succulent planter from TakeMeHomeAndAway is classy, understated and boasts a beautiful Chinese Proverb – “A Book is like a garden carried in the pocket”. A beautiful gift for teachers and librarians, this planter is only $22 and the wrapping it comes in is gorgeous. I love the little book stamp on the back, too!
Attention all John Green fans! This upcycled vintage dictionary page with an Augustus Waters quote from The Fault in Our Stars is pretty awesome. Talk about a cool piece for a high school classroom. I have really been into all of the print-on-dictionary-pages art I have seen recently, and think this handmade item from ForgottenPages is a steal at $8.00.
Another cool reading banner for the classroom – this time from inspirationalbanners and it is pretty adorable for $26.00. This shop also does custom orders, so you could make a special banner just for your readers!
I LOVE literacy t-shirts and this is no exception. Teachers DO love librarians, and this $19.99 tee is pretty much perfect for casual Friday or anytime, really. Check out lovespace on Esty for more details and tons of other t-shirt options.
My favorite item of the week…
I adore this $16 coffee mug that lists two very simple rules to live by. C Jayne Teach may be my new favorite online store for teacher gifts. Lots of cute notecards, pencils, notebooks, stamps and mugs. All lovely!
I’ve had so much fun finding and sharing teacher treasures that I’m sure one or two will end up in future Literacy Loot posts. Be on the look out next week for a book scented candle, cool Harry Potter paraphernalia, and other great literacy loot for book lovers of all ages!
As always, please let me know if you see literacy loot out there that you think is deserving of being featured on the blog. Until then, happy reading and shopping!
